O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of Vince Lamont Boyd Sr. and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Mr. Vince Lamont Boyd Sr., 61 of Williamsburg, Virginia entered eternal rest on April 15, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Vince was born in Richmond, Virginia on August 3, 1959. He joins his beloved parents James and Mary Boyd and brothers Michael and Charles Boyd.
Vince leaves to cherish his memory his beloved wife, Dr. Marcia Boyd, two sons, Vince Boyd, Jr., and Javon Watson.; brothers, Mr. James Boyd Sr. (Janet), Mr. Kenneth Boyd (Lynette); aunts, Ms. Audrey Hatcher, Reverend Brenda Wheeler, and Ms. Jean Johnson; sister-in-Law, Ms. Annette Joseph-Walker; brothers-in-Law; Mr. Morris Jackson, Mr. Harding Smith, and Mr. Ronald Smith (Trinnese); along with countless loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of relatives and dear friends.
No amount of words could fully capture the life of Vince L. Boyd Sr. Vince was a graduate of Maggie L. Walker High School. Upon his graduation from high school, Vince enlisted in the United States Army and was stationed and completed his duties in Germany. In 1985, he graduated from Empire Technical School in New York City, majoring in Computer Programming. He returned to Williamsburg, Virginia where he was employed by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in various capacities most recently as the Bus Operation Supervisor.
Vince truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures, talking and enjoying family and friends, painting (he was an accomplished artist), fishing, working on his cars, and spending time with his wife, sons, nieces, and nephew (Noelle, Nova, and Noah aka “The Bad Butts” as he would lovingly call them). He was a skilled craftsman that often took on difficult projects for family and friends. He genuinely loved his family and friends and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
